  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Pour cold water and lemon juice into an electric pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)). Place a steamer rack inside; spray with cooking spray. Place frozen salmon fillets on the rack, skin-side down. Cover and close vent.
  2. Set cooker to the Steam 2 setting; cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Release vent immediately when pot beeps.
  3. Check salmon for desired doneness; fish should flake easily with a fork. Season with salt and pepper. Cover pot to keep salmon warm until serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • When seasoning the salmon, you can add an optional topping such as pesto sauce, butter, seasoned salt, or sweet barbeque sauce.

Well, I had to microwave the salmon when it came out and then it was good, but the time is way off in this recipe.

Salmon doesn’t get much easier than this! This turned out so moist and I like how it can be seasoned to individual preference.
